Good news! The Washington Science Fiction Association has announced that “The Witch’s Knives,” by Margaret Ronald, is one of the finalists for its 2017 Small Press Award.

Margaret Ronald has been publishing stories with us since 2006, beginning with “The Welsh Squadron.” We’re excited to see her getting recognition for her story.
Congratulations, Margaret, and best of luck!
